Less than a fifth of Americans view Sen. Mitt Romney favorably. The Utah Republican is looked at positively by just 18% of Americans, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released on Sunday. His favorability has dropped from 43% since October 2012, prior to losing his presidential bid to then-President Barack Obama. Romney is viewed very positively by 2% of Americans, somewhat positively by 16%, neutrally by 37%, somewhat negatively by 19%, and very negatively by 19%, according to the poll.

Americans won’t stand for a backstabber like Romney to try and make a name for himself as another “Maverick”. Prior to this President most Americans had no clue what it meant to have someone in their corner actually working toward goals they held. Now we do and we will not fall for this two-faced disrupter. He has shown his true colors. That sanctimonious self-righteous facade he presents is fake. He is nothing more than a spoiler who is willing to say anything against this President to get affirmation by the media and political class. He is a despicable human being, dishonest and ungrateful who was more than happy to have the President’s endorsement and help in his bid for the Senate, but after his election turned on him and became the snake in the grass that he always has been. There are many things that people don’t like about someone but a backstabbing hypocrite is right up there at the top of the list. Romney is a disgrace. While he wants to be a thorn in the President’s side, it now is evident that he nothing more than a smarmy, sanctimonious wretch.

It doesnt matter what Americans or even republicans think of him. The only opinions that count are those of the Utah voters.

I despise the guy, and it is not just because of policy disagreements. It is personal. Romney is a bitter, vindictive, treacherous, jealous, and envious man, ignorant, arrogant, with expectations that he should be crowned king, is better than the peasantry----but most people don't want to crown an arrogant fool.

That 18% is likely almost entirely composed of Democrats who like him because he is anti-Trump. That's not a very good base to operate from but Pierre is to out of touch to realize just how weak his support is.

Re #2, Utah voters aren't seeing him as positively as they once did (Big understatement) I see him as a globalist businessman. BUT I do think it is egregious to bring his religion into the political argument/discussion. That is so last century. What if it were the doctrine of the elect or transubstantiation being brought into political conversation. Fair is fair and Americans like fair and my ancestors have primarily been Americans before and just after the first religious outcasts landed in New England or the future plantation owners who kept English businessmen interested in fostering colonization in VA and the Caribbean for fattening their coffers. I haven't been so much defending Mitt Romney as trying to figure out what motivates him since I am from the two cultures that he is. Judgement is for the Lord but discernment is a gift IMO.

Name recognition got Mittens Romney elected in Utah to the US Senate, Beyond that he is a big time loser who could not even defend himself from bogus allegations made to his face by Candy Crowley in a past presidential debate. Putting up wimps like Romney are why the Republicans have been defeated in past Presidential elections. President Trump is right as Mittens is a pompous holier then thou failed politician. Mittens is of the greedy globalist investor class who are out there to make as much money as possible, and could not give a crap about ordinary American workers. That class is OK with closing American factories and then opening them back up in low wage foreign countries thus losing huge numbers of American jobs, along with importing as much cheap foreign labor as possible, illegally or legally, to take the American jobs that could not be moved abroad. If he could he would have all American workers being able to only earn about the federal minimum wage to increase global investor profits. Clearly the Chinese who have no control over President Trump, would love to see either Joseph Biden or Mittens Romney be elected as US President. Biden because of his known past involvement in international nepotistic corruption and Romney because of his global investor status, both of who the Chinese know they could co-opt by waving big bucks their way. Common sense will take you that all that would be very bad for America.

Ole Mitt doesn't rely on public opinion. Mitt and his big-money supporters BUY office. That's how he won Utah, and that's how he won the Republican 2012 nomination. They throw money at it. They outlast their opponents who drop out because they have less money. In the end, we are left with candidates with lots of money, but are terrible, and we MUST vote for them because ANY Republican is better than a Democrat.

The Case for Indicting John Brennan 3 replies

Former CIA director John Brennan calls the Justice Department’s widening probe into Spygate’s origins “bizarre.” It has no “legal basis,” he bleats. What’s bizarre is that the expanding inquiry didn’t happen earlier. Brennan’s responsibility for criminal leaks during the Obama administration’s investigation of Trump has been obvious for at least two years. Even Trump hater Peter Strzok, the FBI liaison to John Brennan, couldn’t believe the leaks coming out of his shop. Referring to Brennan’s agents as “sisters,” Strzok said to his mistress Lisa Page, “our sisters have begun leaking like mad. Scorned and worried and political, they’re kicking in to overdrive.”

Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon has returned from exile to defend President Trump, believing the presidency is imperiled and that Trump is in urgent need of a more robust defense against the House impeachment inquiry. Bannon spent the past two years on a journey to spark populist movements at hotspots around the world after he was banished from Trump’s inner circle and cut off from Breitbart News, where he was executive chairman, for trash-talking members of the president’s family to author Michael Wolff in the book “Fire and Fury.”

Around the time of Vatican II, a group of socialist bishops signed a secret manifesto called the Pact of the Catacombs. It received its name from having been signed at a church near the historic catacombs in Rome. In my book The Political Pope, I argue that the Pact of the Catacombs foreshadowed the pontificate of Jorge Bergoglio. Consequently, I wasn’t surprised to learn that a collection of bishops and cardinals participating in the Pan-Amazon Synod met to “renew” and commemorate the Pact of the Catacombs this past week.

Asked about the incident, Lifesite News reported Biden's response: “It’s not a position that I’ve found anywhere else, including from the Holy Father, who gives me Communion.” So instead of thinking about the priest's position and offering some kind of contemplative thought, Biden declared it was all O.K. to be advocating for abortion from his position,

Sea level rise is set to challenge human civilization for centuries to come, even if internationally agreed climate goals are met and planet-warming emissions are then immediately eliminated, researchers have found. The lag time between rising global temperatures and the knock-on impact of coastal inundation means that the world will be dealing with ever-rising sea levels into the 2300s, regardless of prompt action to address the climate crisis, according to the new study. Even if governments meet their commitments from the landmark 2015 Paris climate agreement, the first 15-year period of the deal will still result in enough emissions

John Durham may be the most consequential and least known figure in Washington right now. In May, U.S. attorney general William Barr selected Durham, a longtime prosecutor with a résumé so sterling it nearly glows, to investigate the origins of the special counsel’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and whether it was properly predicated. Some Trump fans believe there was a vast effort by a “deep state” of high-ranking intelligence and law-enforcement officials to smear Trump or hinder his campaign by creating a perception of corrupt ties to Russia. In late October, the New York Times quoted unnamed sources who said that Durham’s probe
